    Average Interview

    I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at Amgen (United States)


    I was interviewed by a panel of 4 members. One being the head of the department and 2 others being my team members. The last one was with another department lead. The process was straightforward and the interviewers were well natured and easy to talk to.

    What are my weaknesses and how do you tackle them?

We’re honoring Women's History Month by spotlighting women from our Women Empowered to be Exceptional (WE2) resource group as they share their hopes for a more equal future. Today we feature Natasha Bond, who, as a mother with a teenage daughter, is very focused on female empowerment: “I have run programs to expose girls to career opportunities, mentorship, and motivational speakers designed to help girls understand how they can and should participate and self-advocate. I also hope that I am an advocate for early-career professional women at Amgen. It is critical that this next generation bring their expertise and approach to creating a more diverse and therefore more innovative dynamic.” Stay tuned for more spotlights throughout Women’s History Month.

Over the last several years the Environmental, Health, Safety, and Sustainability (EHSS) department has been joining forces with Amgen's Latin Employee Network (ALEN) to bring the gift of life to patients at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. This year because of their hard work, Amgen has received the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) Community Partner Award. Since the start of our initial partnership in 2017, they have helped provide Children's Hospital, Los Angeles, with the blood products needed for patients. They have registered a total of 698 donors and were able to collect 567 successful units of blood, which can potentially help save up to 1,701 lives. Congratulations to the Environmental, Health, Safety, and Sustainability (EHSS) department and Amgen’s Latin Employee Network!
